The goal of this conference is to celebrate the WCA 40-year anniversary and educate our younger population of women's history, whether its social, political, or economic. We are going to show how all of that can be represented by women's art.
In the end it's the need to have our voices heard. Voting takes place less than a month later. Maybe this conference can help help get more women out to vote.
